Another year.
24 years ago, right now, I was "enjoying" my first day on Parris Island as a Marine recruit. We arrived by bus slightly after midnight. They kept us awake all night and all day our first day, then put us in our racks about 7pm or so as I recall. Rarely a year goes by that I don't think of these things on the 14th/15th of March.

Semper Fidelis.

Most years I remember this date, too. Yesterday, I remembered it, because it marked six months since Mother died. Twenty-four years ago, it was a hard time for me, because I knew that I was losing my boy. I am proud of the man that you have become, and I love you very much. You are one of the lights of my life.
